Antifungal drugs, as the term suggests, are drugs used to treat fungal infections. We are familiar with many antifungal drugs nowadays because they are widely advertised and sold over the counter, which also means that fungal infections are common in the general population, and generally well distributed in all age groups.
What Are Fungi?
Basically, fungi are microcellular organisms that live like a parasite, thus needing other life forms for food and survival. Fungi have a high affinity to moist and dark environment which means that they are prone to live in moist parts of our body like our feet, mouth, armpits, groin and even in our genitals. However, they also tend to live in parts like our scalp and hairline, neck and trunk.
